A nice start to the season. Really liked the theme song, with the Hawaiian chanting and drums. I just wish it was a little longer.

For the episode itself I'm just a little surprised they kept all those anime references in the dub (Megumi Hyashibara's roles and the Revolutionary Girl scene, specifically). Also hey, they dubbed the Eevee segments! And the Houndour retained its Japanese voice, too!

Slight disappointment at Houndour keeping its Japanese voice, did they give the shorts a title?

I'll have to wait for a site to release a dubbed video

You know, I'm kinda confused the WTP of this episode featured Tapu Fini despite the fact it doesn't appear in the episode itself, but Lana was dressed like Tapu Fini, so I guess that isn't so bad.

Theme song is decent enough, though whoever the guy is who is insisting on only 30 second openings desperately needs to be fired and replaced by somebody who wants them to be at least a minute in length.

That "guy" is basically most television networks. Openings longer than 30 seconds don't really happen anymore. Cartoon Network practices this, and so does Disney XD. That likely won't change unless TPCi switches over to streaming only, and even then, they themselves would to have to desire longer openings.

If there's more than one television network executive who needs firing then so be it. Alternatively just make 60 second intros that can easily be cut down to 30 seconds, using the 60 second one for DVDs, streaming services and not garbage networks that still allow for real intros. Call me old fashioned but I don't like my theme songs to be over just when they're starting to get going.

Interesting to note that Rebecca Becker is credited as Rebecca Becker again, the last few episodes saw her credited as Simona Bermen

This episode was crazy but not as bad as I thought it would be, Michele Knotz as Jessie has nothing on Megumi Hayashibara

Wonder if Haven Paschall reads out the Where are you going, Eevee hence the credit, or maybe she voices Eevee

Melissa Hope isn't bad as Lana's mother

Yeah. Can you add Jessie and Ash's classmates reading WTP to the trivia?
